Western Reserve Heart Care Receives ICAEL Echocardiography Accreditation
Date:12/27/2007

Heart Care Practice in Hudson is the Only Accredited Lab in Summit County

Outside of Akron

HUDSON, Ohio, Dec. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Western Reserve Heart Care, a cardiology testing and treatment facility located in Hudson, was recently granted accreditation as an adult transthoracic echocardiography lab by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL).

"We're thrilled to have this accreditation, which is only given to the hospitals and labs that meet the highest standards for echocardiography," explained Dr. Emil Hayek, founder of Western Reserve Heart Care.

The accreditation makes Western Reserve Heart Care the only ICAEL accredited outpatient echocardiography lab in the local area of Stow, Tallmadge, Hudson, Streetsboro, Twinsburg, and Solon. According to Gina Huxtable, registered cardiac sonographer, there were many steps to achieve the accreditation and Western Reserve Heart Care met or exceeded every guideline.

Echocardiography is a complex imaging technique that relies on the experience and training of both the physician and sonographer. Their interpretive and technical abilities determine the diagnostic accuracy of an echocardiographic examination.

The ICAEL was established to provide a peer review mechanism to encourage and recognize the provision of quality echocardiographic diagnostic evaluations by a process of voluntary accreditation. Accreditation status recognizes the laboratory's commitment to quality testing for the diagnosis of heart care.

Dr. Emil Hayek is the Founder of Western Reserve Heart Care. He is the Medical Director of the Heart and Vascular Center at Akron General Medical Center and Assistant Professor of Medicine, Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine. He is board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Disease, Echocardiography, and Nuclear Cardiology. He completed medical school and residency at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and his Cardiology fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Dr. Hayek has been in private practice since 2002, specializing in the care of coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease, and cardiovascular imaging.

Western Reserve Heart Care's friendly environment and in-house equipment provide a much less stressful alternative to a hospital visit. The facility was designed with patient comfort in mind, with ample parking and comfortable patient waiting areas. The office is located at 1335 Corporate Drive in Hudson.
